    Default timging belt replace in witlshire

    Hi, all
    I'm new here.
    I got a 54 signum 1.9 cdti, done 78k miles.
    Some local private garages want £260-£270 for timing belt only, or £330 for timing belt and water bump.
    Just booked a timing belt replace with Vx dealer in Chippenham, price is £285.
    Is it a good price or not?
    Thanks

    My local VX Dealer quoted £569 inc VAT, I ended up paying £296 at an independent. So you got what looks like a good deal

    Called Vx
    They said that price £285 for timing belt kit (belt / roller / tensioner), not with water pump.
    They said they always look at that water pump's condition when they replace the timing belt kit, and then decided replace water pump or not.

    call 2 local garages
    they all want £260-270, which only £15-20 cheaper than Vx
    one only can do at mid january
    the other one can do tomorrow, and £320-£330 for timing belt and water pump.
    Seems Vx is better so far.
